Map It!


The Banner Bank is a beautiful 11-story office building located in Boise, Idaho. The Christensen Corporation, which built and now owns the building, incorporated many significant energy saving features into the initial design. The building was certified in 2006 as one of the first LEED-Core and Shell projects in the country and the 19th LEED Platinum building certified in the world. The design includes an under-floor air distribution system to provide flexibility in flooring use and reduce cooling energy requirements. A high-efficiency chilled water plant provides cooling, and district geothermal hot water provides heating. Other sustainable building features include a gray-water recycling system, rainwater recovery, lighting controls, and other technologies. Over the first year of operation, many control and other issues were revealed to be preventing the building from attaining its full potential in terms of energy efficiency and comfort. These deficiencies were addressed and corrected with enhanced controls, and the building now exhibits exceptional comfort and an ENERGY STAR energy performance score of 80.
